The process of letting go is one that every parent with a child aspiring to go to college will have to endure. That process begins long before any parents’ child steps foot onto campus, but typically will start around the time their child graduates high school. That being said, most children interested in prolonging their educational journey and venturing off to college will be going through the admissions process prior to high school graduation day.

While it’s clear this will be a stressful time for both parents and their children, mitigating that stress begins with establishing a healthy balance of involvement and control, or lack thereof.
